Angela Day, PhD Candidate
My doctoral research focuses on the gendered dimensions of resource-based development. Despite limited academic research in this area, activists and organizations globally have argued that resource extraction has gendered consequences, including differential health impacts, increased inequalities, and higher levels of violence against women. These consequences are of particular concern for Indigenous communities in settler-states. My doctoral research seeks to better understand the gendered dimensions of resource extraction in the Canadian context, with the hope that the results of this research will also be applicable - or adaptable - in other contexts.
